It shows indications of out gassing (chemical breakdown of the celluloid handles) which gives off a caustic gas that will corrode metal. If you look closely you'll see brownish discoloration of the shield and at least part of one of the bolsters. Sadly, Bulldog celluloid is notorious for out gassing. I used to own a few but sold them long ago for that very reason. It has the potential to damage other knives stored with it.

Definitely isolate that Bulldog knife NOW if you have not already done so. "Isolate" = keep it well away from all other knives: different storage container, different room if possible.

Value as to dollar amount, well put them on the bay and I know a lot of folks think more of some knives than I do. Thank you for sharing them. I appreciate the effort as that is a lot of pictures to take and post.
